Quote of the Day

"W is at 31 percent; JFK is at 26 percent. Don't even think about it, Mr Senator. One more thought. Can you imagine how battered a president Kerry would have been by now? He'd be stuck with Bush's Iraq mess; he'd be constantly told he's Neville Chamberlain on Iran for doing exactly what Bush has been doing; he'd be ruthlessly attacked by the Hannity right over Teresa, immigration, gays, and any other cultural issue they could exploit. And the GOP would have escaped the responsibility for their fiscal insanity, while Kerry took lumps for raising taxes. As a matter of principle, I do not regret endorsing Kerry. My decision was based on the manifest incompetence and unconservatism of Bush. But in the sweep of history, it is fitting that Bush, for the first time in his entire life, actually face the consequences of his own recklessness."
-Andrew Sullivan, echoing my thoughts exactly. Posted by Stephen Silver at May 10, 2006 10:31 AM

We have a local character known as Crazy Mall Boy who wanders one of our smaller malls, muttering to himself, rolling his eyes, and stopping now and then as a pronounced shudder runs through his body. He once told my wife, "Don't ever forget, or eat, the orange peel." Crazy Mall Boy makes more sense than Andrew Sullivan.
